Daylight Robbery

This song is by Morcheeba and appears on the album The Antidote (2005).

The heavy gangster helps himself
Don't have time for no one else
Brittle bones and rotten veins
Celebrate ill-gotten gains

No time for justice
Or sweetness and light
How does he thrust his weakness aside?
The grass is hissing to disallow
This misappropriation now

Hold up! That's daylight robbery
Hold up! You're bleeding us dry
Hold up! You're making a mockery
Hold up! Disorganised crime

Send men to hunt them and bring them to trial
No room to function with dogs running wild
Holding us hostage, spreading your germs
Rebellious rich kids with money to burn

Hold up! That's daylight robbery
Hold up! You're bleeding us dry
Hold up! You're making a mockery
Hold up! Disorganised crime

Kiss it goodbye

Hold up! That's daylight robbery
Hold up! He's bleeding you dry
Hold up! You're making a mockery
Hold up! Disorganised crime

Hold up! That's daylight robbery
Hold up! You're bleeding us dry
Hold up! You're making a mockery
Hold up! Disorganised crime

Kiss it goodbye
And crawl up and die
